Dark Rey, Imperial destroyers, Finn and Jannah, Leia, Kylo versus Rey, Palpatine as the villain... So many awesome things about The Rise of Skywalker at D-23!
We debate theories about the images we saw, the poster with its clear meaning and Palpatine's role, and plus we speculate on the direction of Episode IX. Oh, we also gush about the recent wave of Reylopositivity on social media! Lots of cool stuff!
00:00 Intro and general impressions
2:52 Dark Rey! Yeah, we also wanted to talk about it. Is it a vision, a test, what's going on? We debate some theories.
8:52 Bastila and Revan: could Rey and Kylo's plot have a similar turn, with Rey going to the dark side?
11:00 Rey and her arc, and how it can relate to Kylo, how she needs to save herself, etc.
14:12 Vader's helmet is back! We think it's super significant.
21:00 What a gorgeous poster!
26:24 Social media has been super #reylo positive!
29:32 They're honoring the prequels and it's a great sign!
35:04 Leia! Could she be training Rey?
36:00 So. Many. Imperial destroyers!
37:04 Will the First Order split? What can it mean for Kylo's arc and his redemption? What about the Sith troopers?
42:24 More Leia. How will they handle
43:03 Finn and Jannah are looking awesome. We speculate on whether they are siblings and on Finn's arc.
45:44 Vader's breathing is in the trailer. We talk about Vader's important for Kylo Ren and for the sequel trilogy, and speculate on what his presence in this teaser means.
49:28 JJ Abrams is ticking the right boxes to get us excited for Episode IX
50:00 C3PO what's happening to him?
